Holding the Police Accountable
How does discriminatory policing affect us?
Yul-san in Queens, NY said: Two beat cops confronted two community members who were engaged in an argument. As one of the community members walks away, one cop threatens, "I'll put you in the hospital again." (Not shown - the community member had several cuts and bruises on his face."
M Cox in Brooklyn, NY said: I am a mother of two young men (14 & 22) who have been harassed numerous times due to this program. My oldest son, who had desires to be an officer of NYPD, is no longer interested until these policies are changed.
Channie in Hollis, NY said: This practice has to stop. My son was stopped, frisked and arrested even though he did not have any drugs on him. He was released the very next morning after a judge found the arrest unwarranted. The officer kept apologizing because he knew the stop was unwarranted. Now my son has his finge prints in the system, which I believe is the real reason behind this policy. We must put an end to this policy.
